Carl Paladino Confronts Reporter: I'll Take You Out, Buddy

I have a sneaking suspicion that Carl Paladino thinks that the Sopranos show was less a fictional depiction of the underbelly of organized crime as a guideline for how to comport oneself. In addition to exposing his racist and sexually deviant proclivities in emails, he apparently has an anger management problem and doesn't like to be confronted with his own questionable choices:

After (New York Post State Editor and radio personality Fred) Dicker asked Paladino what evidence he had to make accusations to Maghabe at Politico that Democratic gubernatorial frontrunner Andrew Cuomo had cheated on his ex -wife, Blain reports, Paladino turned the tables, assailing Dicker over the Post's coverage of the daughter he fathered a decade ago with a woman other than his wife.

"I want to know why you sent your goons after my daughter, Fred," Paladino demanded. "You send another goon to my daughter's house and I'll take you out, buddy!"

(Update: Paladino also raised the issue of Cuomo's former marriage in a Newsday report this morning, saying he wanted the media to "go after Cuomo and his paramours" but, again, offering no evidence of what he was talking about.)

Paladino's campaign manager, Michael Caputo, separated the two men and sent his candidate into the men's room to calm down. Then, Caputo accused Dicker of working for Cuomo and doing his dirty work, so to speak.

At one point, Blain says, Paladino cursed Dicker, saying, "F--- him!"

Asked again if he had evidence of Cuomo's alleged infidelity, Paladino replied, "Of course I do. You'll get it at the appropriate time."Read moreAfter Dicker asked Paladino what evidence he had to make accusations to Maghabe at Politico that Democratic gubernatorial frontrunner Andrew Cuomo had cheated on his ex -wife, Blain reports, Paladino turned the tables, assailing Dicker over the Post's coverage of the daughter he fathered a decade ago with a woman other than his wife.

Seriously, need any more proof of how unhinged Paladino is?
